• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I'm confused. I posted earlier in the week about not hearing much Adams county on the Smoky Hill site lately. Lookout doesn't seem to be associating many Adams radios either.

I'm deaf to Thoridin and Squaw so what are my options for hearing Adams and Broomfield counties ... if any? I'm guessing I'm out of luck.

Depending on what radio you have, you could listen to Adams County off of the Adams County Simulcast site(775.5312). Or if you don't have a 700mhz capable radio, I would use Lookout(853.7750)for both Broomfield and Adams Counties. Broomfield is on Adams County Simulcast off and on, so I would stick with Lookout!

Hope this helps!

Where you located? I am in Brighton and get the majority of traffic from Lookout and Thorodin. Some on the 700mhz, but not alot. I have Smoky Hill and Sqaw Mtn programmed, but most traffic is from the 2 previously mentioned.

I live at the base of Green Mountain in Lakewood which is the cause of my deafness. I have a PSR-500 so I can monitor the simulcast system ... but the signal is really bizarre ... I have a signal one minute and don't the next. It's really weird.

JFAB, I do hear broomfield on Lookout, but it seems to be one of the few "northern" agencies that associate with Lookout on a regular basis. It would have been nice to hear the Thornton action tonight ... :(

I guess I'm just expecting something that I'm probably not going to get without moving ... I'm stuck with the southern, western and eastern agencies and I'm just going to have to deal with it. Oh the PAIN! ;)

I have the same problem with some of the 2 meter repeaters in town. I'm too close to the mountains to hit the squaw and other mountain repeaters, but I hit the eastern repeaters just fine.
